A tribute to Jon Bannenberg
The whole yacht design business have one man to thank above all, Jon Bannenberg, who became a legend long before he sadly passed away in 2002.
My interest in yacht design came first time I saw the Oceanfast yacht Parts VI entering St Tropez. She was completely different from all yachts I have seen, and today I have made a smaller yacht design which retains much of her charisma.
It is eighteen years between them, but I have to say that Bannenbergs bold lines from the eighties still has a given place in modern yacht design. At least for me.
